Ah, is there no end to this amazing summer we are having, fresh from getting my light sweaters ready at the weekend for the pending change in the weather as its begins to turn autumnal, I wake up on Monday morning to find the sun is shining. I mentioned it to Jamie at training that day and he said it's an Indian summer, he said it was invented by the Indians because they call autumn summer. I have to say, I would be really stuck if it wasn't for my Termonfeckin meats calendar which I get from them every year, this year they decided to go with the picture of main street Termonfeckin for their calendar photographs, taken from different angles, very interesting to look at.

I have to say the Indian summer is a real money saver, normally I wouldn't dream of hanging clothes on the line so late into the year but there has been great drying out this week and I've been wearing shorts for most of the week which saves on general wear and tear, the downside of course is that the evenings are getting shorter, normally at the rate of two seconds every third day, one evening our street lights were 45 seconds slow to come on and were not in sync with dust so I wrote a strongly worded letter to the authorities, I suspect they will be thankful that I informed them of such a major issue but with holidays, late starts, early finishing times, tea breaks, two hour lunch breaks and sick days, they must really be up to their eyes. It was very foggy one morning, something you wouldn't see in the normal summer, I asked Jamie if he thought it was bad but he said he didn't think it was too bad, then Cian said sure it's always foggy in Jamie's head, it was so funny and we all laughed because it was funny.

We also possibly had a full moon but there was some cloud in the way so I can't be sure . Anyway I am continuing to lorry the washing out on the line, but I have one eye on the pending winter and my light woolly sweaters on standby, the weather is a little bit like the Late Late Show, you never know what's going to happen.
